WARNING
Be sure to attach the supplied terminal cover after connection completion. Because high voltage is
applied to the speaker terminals, never touch these terminals to avoid electric shock.

When performing the remote volume control, adjust the master volume control in
advance noting that its setting limits the maximum signal level adjustable with the
volume control. Be sure to avoid turning fully down the master volume control.

5.4. External Equipment Connection to the LINE OUT and PWR AMP IN Terminals

By connecting a signal processor such as an


A-1700 series
equalizer or limiter between the preamplifier section
(LINE OUT) and the power amplifier section (PWR
AMP IN) of the A-1700 series, signals can be
tailored for desired sound output.

Note

section from the preamplifier section.

7. SPEAKER ZONE SELECTION


Pressing the front-mounted ZONE 1 switch permits its zone indicator to light and makes broadcast through the
speakers connected to the rear-mounted Zone 1 output terminals.
Operation for ZONE 2 is performed in the same way as above.

8. INSTALLATION
Keep the unit's all sides over 10 cm away from objects that may obstruct air flow to prevent the unit's internal
temperature rise.

9. RACK MOUNTING
To mount the unit in a standard 19" equipment rack, use the optional MB-25B Rack Mounting Bracket.
Attach the MB-25B to the unit using the supplied 4 screws. When using other screws, each screw must be
shorter than 16 mm.

PF-013B (optional)

Note
Use the optional PF-013B Perforated Panels to provide
sufficient ventilation when mounting 2 or more units in an
equipment rack.

10. CONTROL SETTINGS


Output levels are adjustable with individual volume controls. For music play or announcements, adjust the
corresponding volume control so that the red indicator doesn't light. Note that the sound quality is downgraded
when the red indicator remains lit.
To prevent the accidental change of the settings of input volume and tone (Bass and Treble) controls, remove
their knobs after setting them to the desired position and attach the optional YA-920 Volume Control Covers
instead.
